The best in load path sails is here.  Ullman Sails has proven to be a leader in developement once again.

Performance Longevity For a longer life with lower stretch, FiberPath sails utilize a blend of Technora and Carbon, fibers which unlike the aramid fiber found in other load path products are more resistant to U.V..They are longer lasting laminate.  FiberPath sails are formed by a state-ofthe art lamination machine using high heat and high pressure, up to 10 times the pressure of “thermoformed” or pre-preg laminates to bond film, fiber, scrim, and taffeta into a strong laminate.
The Film & Taffeta Choices  of FiberPath’s 2-mil Mylar film (1 mil per side)handles minor loads smoothly. For added durability, choose a double sided (cruising) taffeta. You will see why they have a wider wind range.  FiberPath’s multiple yarn paths handle primary and secondary loads more efficiently than a tri-radial sail, and less fiber is needed for shape-holding – thus a FiberPath sail weighs less and holds its shape over a wider wind range.
they are reasonably priced as well, for little more than you’d pay for tri-radial sails and a lot less than load-path sails from other sailmakers you can step up your boat’s performance with a FiberPath sail from Ullman Sails.
